Excellent food at La Mandoline (as I often find at French restaurants, I'm a sucker for the starters and desserts). Lovely setting but the opening hours are a little short so don't be surprised if you had to wait for staff to be ready to...More

Came to this Resturant for a Solo Dinner and was blown away. By far my best resturant in Addis. The road leading to the restaurant almost made me turn back but when I entered the gate and saw the patio and viewed the resturant, I...More

Excellent in taste of dishes, service of staffs and the atmosphere of restaurant. Variety of menu is not much. But they had today's special menu for it. The location is limitation.

Spent two weeks in Addis and visited La Mandoline about 5-6 times, and never failed us. Amazing fresh food, good service, French dishes and wonderful desserts. Would highly recommend.

Great with kids for a cafe outdoors meal, as they can run around. But also great with adults in the evenings. Menu never disappoints. However could do with a few simple food options for kids. Always annoying that they don't take credit card.

We went for a quiet meal after a busy day in Addis Ababa, after reading about it in Lonely Planet, and it really met our expectations! The food was delicious, and the ambiance lovely. Unfortunately I was feeling really nauseous in account of taking anti-malaria...More

Can be a bit up and down, especially if owner is not there, decent french food if a bit pricey. Service at times can be slow especially when busy. Good place for a Sunday lunch and very good for kids. Great wine selection but expensive.

The food is pretty good, small portions for the high price though. The owner is a very friendly French guy who is happy to explain a bit about the menu and wine choices that are on offer. There is a bar Infront of the beautiful...More

You can make it by phoning the Restaurant, or just go even without reservation, you will be served. If you are dinning in number, better reserve on phone.

Description
Note that there are no street addresses in Ethiopia! I've done my best to describe its location as would be done by one person living in Ethiopia to another. I lived in Ethiopia for 2 years, and I assure you this place exists. A map to this establishment can be found in the American Embassy publication at: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/ethiopia/427391/PDF%20files/The%20Lion%20June%209.pdf
